What is West Valley Conservatory of Ballet?
West Valley Conservatory of Ballet is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit organization which strives to provide the community with classical ballet training. WVCB chose non-profit status in order to ensure everybody who was willing to learn the classical art of Ballet could regardless of income.
Our primary focus is to offer classical dance training to the community. We also have a performing arts company which consists of volunteer dancers whom are classically trained and have a passion for their art. Our Performing Company’s primary function is to present our art to the community so that people will understand the standard of classical ballet that we provide. The Performance Company also provide shows to local retirement communities, woman’s shelters, and local schools. In doing this we hope to provide an education to the arts and enrich the community culturally. Finally we provide scholarships to students who wish to attend summer intensive programs at well-known schools across the country. This gives the students an opportunity to experience the dance world at a larger scale. It also helps them obtain dance scholarships when applying for college in the future.
WVCB relies on the generosity of the community to run our facilities. Our Performance Company holds several benefit shows throughout the year to help raise funds. We also ask our students to contribute to their dance training. However we will never turn a student away because of an inability to pay.
Being a non-profit gives us an opportunity to reach the community in a whole new way. Some families may not have a budget that allows for quality ballet training. Here at WVCB we are giving that opportunity back to the community regardless of what they make. When you invest in WVCB you are investing in the future of young lives and impacting the community for the better.
